"Orphée de Younès Klouche is a photo album inspired by Jean Cocteau's 1950 film, a reinterpretation of the classic Greek myth of Orpheus.
Cocteau's film features simple but ingenious special effects and explores the symbolism of mirrors as a representation of death. In Klouche's book, the mirrors and the visual mirror appear not only in the photographs themselves but also in the object of the book and in the physical act of turning the pages while reading. As Cocteau stated in The Art of Cinema 1992; We watch each other grow old in the mirrors They bring us closer to death. Born in Lausanne, Younès Klouche studied photography at ECAL and graduated in 2015. In his work, the photographer seeks to redefine the documentary genre through the use of a conceptual and thoughtful approach. The places documented in Orphée are the same places as those featured in the historical exhibition New Topographies: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape shown at the George Eastman House, Rochester in 1975. This new book, therefore, represents an essay on the evolution of documentary photography and the current conceptual-reflective turn it is taking. There are no photographs here, so individually the images can be viewed in an aesthetic report. But together, they conduct a fiction; Orphée builds a place that does not exist, with fragments of the North American reality. "na."
